I have a database where 50 sheets come in each week. Right now they are names Sheets 1-50 but each sheet has a name on it (the names vary from week to week) - can I automatically get the sheet to name itself based on the name which is entered in cell c3?

Use:
Code:
Sheets(1).Name = [C3]
Change the (1) to the appropriate worksheet number as required.
